How long does it usually take to recover from c section? And does anyone have any suggestions on easiest ways to wake baby up to breastfeed? Yesterday at 5:45 pm I gave birth to my beautiful babygirl! By c section..apparently my pelvis is to small to have her normally I've never had surgery before so I'm really nervous about how I'm supposed to try and heal and take care of my newborn baby girl at the same time. Also she's a super hard sleeper no matter what I do to try and wake her to nurse she just won't do it. Any suggestions??
